Activation Energy participates in the Single Electricity Market (SEM), a capacity market that spans the island of Ireland. The relative isolation and limited interconnections of the Irish grid, together with increasing amounts of renewable energy, create additional growth opportunities for demand response including balancing services.

"Activation Energy has pioneered demand response in Ireland and provides us an immediate foothold with commercial, institutional, and industrial customers that are already thinking about better ways to manage energy. Capacity markets like the SEM have been among EnerNOC's most attractive opportunities," said Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.

"We're excited to be joining a team with such a strong track record of success. Adding the full suite of EnerNOC's energy intelligence software applications and its expertise in some of the most sophisticated demand response markets in the world to Activation Energy's keen understanding of the local market will be a great advantage for both our end-use and grid operator customers," said Patrick Liddy, founder of Activation Energy.
